Katie Price has fled to a ‘secret’ location in ‘disguise’ after being ‘devastated’ by a conman.
Katie, 43, is thought to have made thousands of pounds from a rogue trader she was paid to promote via Instagram – and unwittingly left some of her followers missing months of wages after buying into his scheme.
The former glamour model said she was "absolutely devastated" to hear the news about the conman, who goes by Josh Chandler, as he "has conned not only me but my family, friends, loyal fans and supporters."
She continued: "My heart goes out to all those that this conman’s deceit has affected, I pledge to you all I will seek justice.”
Katie is said to have received around £3,000 per promoted post, and on at least two occasions took to her Instagram story to urge others to invest to make a "safe income".

She labelled Josh a currency "whizz".
Now Katie has headed to the airport with her kids Harvey, 19, and Princess, 13, and fiancé Carl Woods, in ‘disguise’ as she takes a break from the UK.
In a clip shared to Carl’s Instagram story, he can be seen asking Princess: "Where we off to?"
She responds: "Secret."
He then asked Harvey the same question, only for him to also respond: "Secret."

"Is it a secret?" Carl asked, as the rest of his family chimed: "Yeah!"
"Big secret," Carl responded.
Later, the family could be seen taking a shuttle through the airport with Katie’s Louis Vuitton luggage crammed in with them, as Carl told Katie: "Look, we’re on a little cart going through the airport. Do you like it?"
Katie, who was wearing a pink face mask, quickly said: "I’m trying to be in disguise but everyone’s just looking."
Carl quipped: "You’re hardly gonna be in disguise with Harvey next to you. Princess wants the ground to swallow her up.
"And have you seen the Mr Bean film where he gives everyone the bird as he goes past? Harvey's doing it."
But the family weren’t heading for a plane – instead clambering aboard a helicopter for their flight to an as-yet-unknown location.
Katie and her fiancé have been heading off abroad on several occasions so far this year, flocking to Portugal for a holiday and heading to Turkey for Katie’s latest cosmetic surgery.
It comes as one nurse from Newcastle, Kate Dalrymple, lost £825 after being ‘guaranteed’ £4,000 from conman Josh.
He initially said she’d receive £1,250 if she transferred just £100 to him – but then insisted on a ‘release fee’ of £725, after which she’d allegedly receive £4,000.
At least five others were tricked by the scammer, who has now been reported to Action Fraud.
